LG is rumored to be working on an in-house mobile processor dubbed as LG Odin, which is expected to launch with the highly rumored LG G3.
There has been no confirmation, but according to a new report from The Korea Herald, LG is teaming up with TSMC to manufacture their own mobile processors, and will begin mass production soon.
The report cites “industry sources familiar with the situation” and is expected to launch in the second quarter of this year. The source also said the chip will be a part of LG’s next flagship smartphone, the LG G3, which should launch before June. We’ve heard the same rumors before as well, suggesting that LG will release the rumored LG G3 in June, and will go on sale in July.
An LG Electronics spokesperson confirmed that the company will be mass-producing application processors “soon,” but did not further elaborate.
However, an industry source familiar with the situation noted that LG Electronics will begin mass- producing the mobile chips, which are often referred to as the “brain” of smart devices, within the second quarter of this year.
